|In response to Re: Leak from hot Find out if you have copper sweat or galvanized, or plastic supply|
The pipe that you screwed the hot water hose to spins too? Does that mean that you aren't connecting the hot water hose to a faucet, an Angle Stop, or shut off valve? Find out what kind of plumbing supply piping you have. When you call a plumber, you are going to be asked. Where the hose connects to the pipe that spins and goes into the wall is drywall (and maybe wallpaper) right? Poke a hole in the drywall to open up a circle about the size of a silver dollar, and look into the wall with a small flashlight. Is the pipe you are screwing the hot water hose onto threaded all the way (is it a close nipple? )and is it connected to a 90 degree bend that is steel (galvanized pipe), or is it connected to a copper tube, and your spinning it with pliers is spinning the sweat / thread adapter on the copper supply line? If it is connected to copper, the drywall will need to have a much larger hole made in it so that a LICENSED plumber can get access to the fitting, and re-sweat a new adapter. Ask them to add a shutoff faucet.
